Postdoc Coffee Meetups

Culturally Responsive Mentoring Postdoctoral Coffee Meetups

Posted 6 December 2023

Following the success of the Culturally Responsive Mentoring Postdoctoral Coffee Meetups that took place for postdocs in the College of Science over summer 2023, the College of Science EDI Committee and the Culturally Responsive Mentoring team are keeping the momentum alive with a new rotating coffee morning for postdocs in the College. Every two months during the 2023-24 academic term, a different school in the college will host postdocs from across the college for informal mentoring and light refreshments.

The School of Computer Science were the first to host the rotating networking coffees. The first event took place on Monday 4 December at 10:30 am in the School of Computer Science, with tea, coffee, and refreshments. As it is the festive period in the lead-up to Christmas, there were plenty of delicious mince pies and chocolate treats for everyone to enjoy, while a playlist of everyone's favourite festive tunes played in the background. The morning provided a fantastic chance for postdocs to connect with new and old friends, to maintain connections made over the summer and to get to know others throughout the college that they had not previously collaborated with.

In the new year, other schools will take their turn to host the event, so keep an eye on the College of Science EDI webpage for more details on the next coffee in January.
